Some Odd Girl November Release

Hey guys and girls! :) I'm back, waaay late.. *grins* with my projects from the Some Odd Girl November digi release. This is how I roll these days, right? I just hope my projects are worth the wait for you all.

So I'll get right to it. Just a heads up, you might wanna grab a drink, I waffle. A lot. :/

Back on Monday we kicked off the show with the adorable Snowfall Kaylee, and the amazing samples from the team can be seen HERE. I love her scarf and hat, so stylin'!!  


Yesterday we had Winter Bear. Is he not the cutest thing ever? You can see the DTs creations HERE. I love his accessories and that cute little face of his. Don'tcha just wanna chub him?! Uh huh! Now, I know he's a Polar Bear, but I wanted to do something a little different to match my patterned paper and make him stand out a little more.. I coloured the fella brown. Why the hell not, right?

I've coloured him up using my beloved ProMarkers and FlexMarkers which I'm feeling even more attached to after watching some wack Copic Show over on Create and Craft. Don't get me wrong, I know some peoples who ROCK the Copics, many of them are on the Some Odd Girl DT - BUT there are people who bang on about Copics making your work so much better and dissing all other alcohol markers. Shoot me. I believe the more you practice, the harder you work, the more you experiment - THE BETTER YOUR RESULTS - whatever your medium. Okay, I'ma step off my soapbox now. *grins*

So my patterned paper is from an older collection from a couple Christmas' ago from Crate Paper - Snow Day collection. Love the quirky colours. I stamped my sentiment from Paper Makeup Stamps in Pumpkin Pie from SU! and punched it with a Decorative Label punch. I added a couple vellum snowflakes and attached them with various SU! brads.


Earlier TODAY we had the last of our release in the form of Cuppa Mae. Heh, Mae isn't actually in the cup but she has a delicious cup of hot cocoa? coffee? what's your brew? You can see how the other ODD girlies switched Mae up HERE.

Okay, hold on to your hats. Lou Mac went.. PURPLE. Uh huh!! This is the girl who openly admits to purple being her least favourite colour to work with. Paper wise, colour wise, everything - wise. Heh. Refer to previous rant ^^ if you don't push yourself and practice, what's the point?! So Cuppa Mae has a rich purple jumper on. Uh huh. She matches the paper I used from another older collection from Cosmo Cricket - Mitten Weather. 

I've stamped my sentiment from Amy R in Soft Suede ink from SU! - I think Mae would make a perfect Christmas card for a friend or even a winter birthday. That's what I love about these images - so freakin' versatile. You just gotta think outside the box a little. 

What else? Uhhh, more vellum snowflakes. I mentioned a while back that I was addicted to them. They finish off my cards perfectly and are so my style. :) I've attached them using some little beige brads from my stash. Some delicious cotton stripe ribbon and polka dot button threaded with purple twine - all from The Ribbon Girl, and it's job done!!


I hope these have been worth the wait - I'm such a bad DT member lately. Life has been getting in the way of my hobby and it's making me mad - so all of the spare time I have I'm busying myself with colouring/ creating. Head over to the Some Odd Girl blog now and see what the ON TIME DT members came up with! ;) Heh.

Okay. Bed time for me - says the girl who wanted an early night. That sorta stuff never happens these days. Over and OUT! xo


  1. love both of your cards so much! they are so colorful.
    I use copics but have never been adverse to other markers in school we used promarkers and I loved how bright they colored.

  2. Wow Lou, the way you colored that bear is crazy-good!! I am so bad with animals, I'll have to use this for some furry inspiration! Cuppa looks awesome as well! Both cards are truly fantastic!!


I would love to hear what you think. Thanks for taking the time to look. xo Lou.
